Saturday, 25. May 2019, Waterwise Community Center, Removing Your Lawn - Four Methods to **** Your Turf for New Plantings

Who’s on turf? Who’s on second? Who’s on third? We can’t answer the last two questions, but if you or your gardener are just watering and mowing your grass and don’t actually use it, it might be time to consider water and maintenance-saving alternatives that will bring you more beauty and interest than your turf ever did.
Come learn what it takes to get your sod out, and the advantages and disadvantages of each method.  The techniques work equally well if your “lawn” is really more of a patch of weeds.
Hit a ‘Home Run’ and learn about the following:

Choosing the best method of turf removal for each situation based on the site, personal preferences, and the type of turf or weeds present
Four methods for turf removal including 1) Sheet mulching, 2) Solarization, 3) Physical mechanical removal, and 4) Chemical application, when it is useful due to specific turf or weed species
Guidelines for effective chemical application with the lowest environmental impact
The first steps to consider in replacing your lawn with a climate appropriate garden, creating your own landscape design, and additional resources to help you on your way.

We will also have a hands-on portion demonstrating two organic methods of killing your lawn: Solarization and Sheet Mulching.
Please wear closed-toed shoes and bring a hat, water, and sunblock.  We encourage everyone, of all physical abilities, to participate in the hands-on portion.  However, if you would rather watch instead, please join us anyway!
